Hp Lovecraft-poster by Asgrimson Hp Lovecraft-poster by Asgrimson
This is my tribute to one of the world's best writers!

Here is my interpretation as a poster of the horror
master HP Lovecraft. I feel really happy with this picture.
It went even better than what I expected.
Estimated time of this poster is approximately 12 hours.

I had some problems in the beginning how I would visualize this great master. But I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to do this picture very dark and crude, given that he is a horror novel's father.
I then decided me to visualize the image like an old photo taken around the early 1900's. But I also wanted to make it feel a little more like a painting and therefore decided to make the picture feel like it was painted with watercolor and ink. The results where really exciting.
After that I played around with creating my own texture and highlighted the picture went it to be even darker when I put the texture on. When this was done, I felt that I wanted to bring Lovecraft's works som more. I felt that it was not good enough with "The Old Ones" symbol only, and the book he's written in.
So I took a very appropriate quote from him self. Then did I put in as a typewriter. I know that he hated to write with a typewriter, so I felt maybe this font went even more appropriate given the text;)

Hope you enjoy the picture and if you're interested in learning more about my process, you can watch it on my blog below

And if you're keeping track, I will mention when the poster will come out to buy for all the Lovecraft fans out there;)
